As a former model, The New Look For You founder Mimi Lee-Grier knows beauty isn’t as easy as magazines make it look. But she also knows the behind-the-scenes tricks that make it seem so effortless. Permanent cosmetics, eyelash extensions, and eyebrow tinting are three low-maintenance methods she uses to make eyes bigger, lips fuller, and lashes more seductive—effects that won’t smear or fade while swimming, crying, or both. She also reconditions skin with facials, uses her oil-painter’s hand to apply traditional makeup, and swaddles guests in the deep heat of infrared body wraps.

When Elle: A Clinical Day Spa first opened in 1997, its therapists specialized exclusively in massage. But soon, they saw that what the average guest needed most was not a standalone massage appointment, but an immersive, multifaceted experience that could undo the stress that bombards them on a daily basis. Owners Leigh Shaw and Polly Tabares, who have experience in the spa industry and the fields of dermatology and plastic surgery, rethought their approach and expanded their services into both traditional spa therapies and med-spa treatments.
Today, Leigh and Polly oversee everything from body wraps and facials to Botox injections and prescription skincare. They also maintain a stash of products for at-home care, stocking lines such as Dermalogica and bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals. For frequent guests, they coordinate VIP memberships that offer perks such as service discounts and massages that harness the rejuvenating power of phoenix tears.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Cynthia L. Cote, the staff at MD Cote Medical, Laser & Spa harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
The staff at Desert Sun Tanning work to tone the face and body, detoxify, and increase metabolism through red-light-therapy sessions and infrared body wraps. Some Desert Sun Tanning locations employ the far-infrared-heat body wrap in 50-minute treatments, during which heat-activated silicone treatment pads latch onto thighs, hips, abdomen, and arms. At other locations, patrons lie inside the Fit Bodywrap's sleeping-bag-like device for 60 minutes, gossiping and stifling giggles as the infrared rays sink in. Both wraps yield the same results, aiming to purge the body of toxins, increase metabolism, and burn calories lurking in the shadows of love handles. Fifteen-minute red-light-therapy sessions bathe the entire body in red-light waves measuring 633 nanometers, designed to attract nanoscopic surfers who trigger collagen production and reduce wrinkles with their laid-back lingo.
Based on the belief that life energies exist and a state of unwellness results when they are blocked or imbalanced, Resonant Healing’s polarity therapy combines the healing practices of Chinese and Indian medicine with Western chiropractic and osteopathic therapies. During your session, you'll work with an experienced therapist to determine your healing goals, be they “stop my hair from crying” or “grow back my monkey tail.” Then, using relaxing hands-on treatment and slow, gentle rocking movements, your therapist will unblock the subtle energies of your soul-sack—increasing your awareness of your body while snaking the spirit's hair-clogged drains. You'll want to arrive for the 55-minute treatment in soft, loose-fitting clothing.
Even though she’s the owner of Auburn Electrology & Skin Care, Carol Ray still heads to work each day with the same enthusiasm as when she first started her career in aesthetics. She constantly enhances her expertise by attending continuing-education classes and writing pop-quiz questions on her herbal body wraps. She displays her ever-sharpening skills to clients as she removes hair and red veins with electrolysis, extends lashes for up to three months with Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions, and clears out pores with European facials. She draws from an arsenal of products that include Dermalogica skincare formulas and Relax & Wax No-Scream Cream—also available for purchase.
